Alexandria, Va., USA, May 6, 2020 – The American Association for Dental Research (AADR) announced Bruno Lima, University of Minnesota School of Dentistry, Department of Diagnostic and Biological Sciences, Minneapolis, MN USA, as the 2020 recipient of the AADR Procter and Gamble Underrepresented Faculty Research Fellowship.
Lima currently works at the Department of Diagnostic and Biological Sciences, at the University of Minnesota School of Dentistry in Minneapolis. Lima is a Microbiologist and is interested in understanding how bacteria interact with their environment and how these interactions affect their overall physiology.
“The new fellowship supports researchers from underrepresented racial and ethnic groups at the early stages of their scientific careers and to increase representation of these under-represented groups at the faculty level in science and academia,” said AADR Immediate Past President Tim Wright. “Dr. Lima is the second recipient of the AADR Procter and Gamble Underrepresented Faculty Research Fellowship, and we thank P&G Professional Oral Health for making this possible.”
Recipients receive $10,000 that must be put towards their post-doctoral research, establishment of their laboratories, the completion of a research project or preparing research for publication or grant submission. The Fellowship is supported by P&G Professional Oral Health, Crest + Oral-B.
Due to the cancellation of the 2020 IADR/AADR/CADR General Session, the award was given locally.
